Emerywood Baptist Church Team Arrives
How does one best get over jet lag in Bucharest? By taking in a few of the sights of course! The ministry team from Emerywood Baptist Church, High Point, NC, arrived yesterday for a week of ministry at Project Ruth. We gave them a day to recuperate before they begin their week tomorrow. You see them pictured here in front of Parliament, the 2nd largest building in the world. They also experienced Romanian fast food in the form of shaorma (similar to gyro). The day came to a close with a tour of the Ruth School and a warm lasagna supper in the cafeteria (not your typical school cafeteria fare!) Tomorrow we are off to Glina to worship at the Roma church where the team will sing and give testimonies. It's a reminder of how great our God is when we can worship together despite not sharing a common language. Sunday evening the team will be at Providence Romanian Baptist Church. The church's mandolin choir is truly a worshipful experience. Then Monday comes... Kids, moms, teachers, sports, crafts, staff training, OH MY!
